Unz það in fríða
frilla kenndi
ástráð mikið
eitt er vissi:
Drep við haus Hymis,
hann er harðari
kostmóðs jötuns,
kálki hverjum.   (eddic or germanic)

(Until the beautiful beloved lady gave him
vital friendly advice which she knew:
‘Smash it on Hymir’s skull, the food-sated giant’s,
that’s harder than any goblet!’
)
